-- knesset. and they break down how many votes each party gets. mr. netanyahu got 31 seats, you need 60-plus one, meaning 61 to form a government. mr. netanyahu in his usual groups of friends got many less than they were expected to. the exit polls put them at 61 seats, which makes you a very weak prime minister. now begins the horse trading, over the next coming week, we will see mr. netanyahu make a lot of tough choices. he promised the nationalistic party he won't make a peace deal with the palestinians, that loses the center left. does he promise the religious parties that he won't make members of the ultrareligious go to the military? that will hurt him with the center left who, want tax cuts and the help to the religious go down. when you have a narrow margin as a prime minister, historically, here, it means you are wake and not able to do anything significant in the knesset and we will be back to early elections, mr. netanyahu had had a very stable government. but like the united states, neil, israel is rocked by some severe economic problems here. there was a $10 billion budget defic

to come in. netanyahu in the usual right wing coalition partners hit about 63 knesset seats. more necessary to form a government. but less than they would have liked and fewer than predic predicted. the coming weeks as they try to put together a coalition, he will have tough choices to make. with the smile of a man third term seemed assured they cast the ballots as the polls opened in jerusalem. the coalition began to fall apart over the domestic pressure on budget, a and military service for israeli ultra religious and possibility of a strike. on the nuclear facilities. he joined the party with the nationalist leader leeberman to quarter more 40 of the needed 61 knesset seats to form a government. but it doesn't materialize when netanyahu was battered from the left and the right. former chief of staff came on strong. bennettbe is the darling of the settleers who live on the land in west bank that palestinians want for the future state. his inclusion in netanyahu government would virtually assure the continued deadlock in talks. the left winging movement of the future partner prom

as they are in the knesset because they argue -- you have people in the center, on the left fighting it out with netanyahu. you're allowed to fight with netanyahu, ladies and gentlemen. it's okay. your thoughts, peter. >> absolutely. there's no consensus on these views in israel. no one has a monopoly of being pro-israel, and chuck hagel reminds me of the israeli generals and people from the national security establishment like meir dagan who are warning about the potential for war with iran. they have seen it up close. >> and by the way, the history of anwar sadat and shimon peres and rabin, people who have fought the good wars, and eisenhower, if you will. >> and learned the lessons. >> and thank you, peter and joan. >>> up next -- this prompter is a little slow. two kennedys, former congressman patrick kennedy and his cousin christopher kennedy lawford, join us to talk about addiction and guns. this is "hardball," the place for politics. some brokerage than ordinary sweat. it smells worse, and it can happen any time -- to anyone! like when i ran to catch the train to work and a draft blew my skirt up a

was projected to win 11 seats in the knesset. he's now projected to win 19. >> ifill: does this mean, margaret, that netanyahu, even though he is the winner, now has to look to him to form a coalition? >> warner: he does, gwen. in fact, prime minister netanyahu was just here. he said he's already reached out. it was clear he meant to lapid. even before tonight's result, advisors to both camps were saying he was likely to reach out to lapid first because lapid is a centrist. he has one nonnegotiable demand which is that the religious, the ontario dks here be subjected to the draft. nenetanyahu has no problem with that. otherwise he's appealing to both left and right because he's focusing on economic issues. in fact there was a prominent likud backer here tonight who said, well, he's well known from television. he's good looking. he's handsome. he's articulate and he speaks good sense. so there isn't likely to be a huge rejection of lapid-netanyahu coalition by netanyahu's traditional supporters but that still only leaves him with 50 of the 60-plus that he would need. so it's really where netany

they will whip just over a quarter of the seats in the knesset, the israeli parliament. which means they will have to form, netanyahu, even if he does win will have to form a coalition. looks as if at the moment if the coalition building will be very difficult and he will have to rely on several smaller parties to gain a majority in the parliament. this will not really guaranty a very strong and solid government in the years to come. you know i was watching the inauguration yesterday and following your elections very closely and regardless of whether you voted for or against, or didn't vote for president obama, you now have an administration for four years. you know exactly when your next elections are going to be. this is not the case in israel. and we may actually find ourselves having another election in a year or two because this government does not look as if it is going to be very solid. that reflects also on your questions regarding iran. you need a very strong unity government in order to take a bold decision such as striking iran. and therefore, i, i'm not sure what the res
